    Kings playoff chances remote.

    We shall see if and how the Kings schedule is tweaked and if we instead have to play the Clippers or Lakers. My guess is the NBA wants Zion and has never hesitated putting their finger on the scale. We shall see.

    Kings playoff chances remote.

    I think I communicated poorly. The Grizz are currently 3.5 games ahead. A play in game is triggered if the 9th place team is within 4 games.

    Well. I know a guy who does play by play for the US National Water Polo team (Greg Mescall) which is surprisingly quite similar to basketball. He would be a great replacement hire as he does fit the community.

    Kings would make the Playoffs in proposed 22 or 20 team Playoffs!

    Except from what I have seen it’s not happening

    Kings playoff chances remote.

    this system is allowed to 1) get them the local TV revenue in as many markets as possible 2) give them, they hope, two play-in games with Zion. That’s why the play-in threshold is increased to 4 games from 3.5. I just hope the Kings use it to improve their draft position and learn about...

    Kings playoff chances remote.

    It’s good for us regardless. I just hope the team uses the opportunity wisely. If we beat the Pels great keep going full steam ahead. If we lose we need to know going into the draft more what we have with James and Bagley.

    Zero. It’s whatever costs the NBA money. But let’s not forget the part Weber played in this fiasco.

    Kings playoff chances remote.

    Given the way this event is structured I play Bazemore a ton against the Pels and I play Barnes time at PF. If we win, we keep going. If we lose that game I switch and play Bagley and Justin James big minutes to see what I have as your play off chances will be virtually zero.

    Kings playoff chances remote.

    Okay so here are the rules.... the teams will play 8 games with the key teams having the following schedule. You have to finish 8 or 9 to enter the play-in and then the 9th has to beat the 8th seed twice.

    Who should get the minutes when the games return?

    your point could be true and we still limit his minutes in this playoff scenario. Next year is another year and perhaps the young man will figure out athletic ability isn’t enough. But for this playoff run he did nothing positive to put us in this spot and playing him any major minutes will...

    Who should get the minutes when the games return?

    Looking at the data it’s hard to make a case Bagley should get any minutes. Vlade’s pride will prevent it but fitting him in and his atrocious defense makes it hard to play him.... I think more line-ups with Barnes at 4 and Bazemore at 3 will be tried. Beli and Bogi together on the floor...

    Who should get the minutes when the games return?

    To your point on 5 man advance stats.... Looked at the stats and calculated the Average Net Rating for when the player was on the floor with with the current roster (rosters with Ariza and Dedmon deleted) Here's the ROSTER: / Average Net Rating / Top 10 Line-ups over Bottom 10 line ups Marvin...

    Play for seeding?

    i think it might look like this given the league wants competitive games as much as possible and games for local TV: West Memphis - Golden State (no Curry or Thompson allowed) Sacramento - San Antonio New Orleans - Pheonix Portland - Minnesota. East Orlando - Cleveland Chicago - New York...

    Play for seeding?

    Looks like the NBA may be rethinking the 5 game mini season approach for many of the reasons outlined..... The NBA sent out a survey to all 30 NBA GMs on Friday night regarding how to restart the season, league sources told Shams Charania of The Athletic. The poll included whether the NBA...

    Play for seeding?

    Im not saying Vlade will pick the right player. It’s a crap shoot at best. He is more likely to pick Justin Jackson while we are all are screaming to take OG, or to take Bagley while the fan base wants Luka. BTW, I think the average Kings fan pick has been far more rational than Vlade’s...

    Play for seeding?

    Vassell is a very good shooter (James isn’t) and a good defender. I’m also okay with Nesmith and Bey though again all could be gone or more likely all are gone but the one San Antonio, New Orleans and Portland, all very good drafting teams, don’t like.

    Play for seeding?

    its debatable that Vassell will even reach us at 12. But at 11 or 12 we likely get our pick of Vassell, Bey, Naismith. At 14 we get which ever one San Antonio, Portland and New Orleans deem the worst if any.

    Play for seeding?

    right but if San Antonio, Portland and New Orleans pick before us then they won’t miss and Vlade loses a blind luck chance to make the right pick. And you missed if we only have 5 more games there is no chance to make the play-offs. Only the chance to lose draft spots.

    Play for seeding?

    well given the Kings history they probably will screw it up but San Antonio, New Orleans and Portland won’t. So if we draft before them maybe Vlade gets lucky.
